#190: Happy Palentine's Day

February 14th, 2019 · 65 minutes

Flo's hosting this week, so there is lots of talk of reality television in the first half hour of this show (IT'S RELATED!). We're also hereby declaring the regressive holiday this podcast posts on as "Palentine's Day." It's a day to celebrate your friends and your podcast co-hosts.

After the break, we'll discuss whether companies like Google are responsible for government apps that violate human rights (it's the world we're living in folks), and why the company's augmented reality tricks are probably the future of marketing.
